LGBTQ+ and women's welcome events




This year marks the transition from The Vagina Monologues production to our own model of original monologues- this manifests itself in a double feature: first show is  The Vagina Monologues, second show is Our Monologues! Our theme this year is Authenticity without Apology. This means reconstructing and reclaiming our own identities through storytelling - making sure to stay true to who we are and what we believe in. Often we are asked to compromise parts of ourselves or else apologize for taking up space- not this time! We want to enable our community to express themselves fully and freely.

General Tickets- Sproul Jan 22-Feb 16 or Online for $12.00
VIP Tickets - Online for $20.00
Merchandise Sales: On Upper Sproul Plaza, look for the VDay table (red and black banner)  Jan 22-Feb 16 (prices vary)
V-Day at UC Berkeley is a group that puts Eve Ensler's production of The Vagina Monologues every year to raise money to end gendered violence. We are also a movement on campus and in the Bay Area.
